      No Comments on HOA Justice Is Rare, But Sometimes Happens

Do HOAs ever find true justice when they’re ripped off by property managers? Well, not often. But once in a blue moon a crooked HOA manager is held to account. Well, kind of.

A couple of property managers in Massachusetts and New Hampshire were caught with their hands in several HOA cookie jars under their control. Over a two year period they stole more than a hundred thousand bucks.

Four days ago I blogged about a retired Air Force pilot suffering from leukemia in San Antonio. The city is trying to fine him because of his uncut lawn. Other bloggers put out the word as well. I’ve now learned that volunteers in Texas are stepping forward to help this man in his time of need.

Isn’t America a great country?
